February 16, 2007:

Today I finished editing the woodwinds and strings on Answers then started to actually get the mix up. I’m beginning to now hear all the ideas I had when I originally orchestrated it years ago. It’s a real pay off when those ancient impressions come to life in front of your naked ears.

It’s just difficult getting my guitar to balance with the orchestra. It is such a different beast. The orchestra is like the perfect bud in bloom and my guitar is like the honeybee that sucks it of its nectar.

It’s got a buzz and a sting but can work to make some sweet stuff.

But they need each other to make the honey.

I only hope this song comes out as sweet as that.
